Patty Gonzalez appears as a contestant in the fourth season of the NBC reality television series The Biggest Loser. She is 34 years old and hails from San Diego, California. She is married and is the mother of three children, as well as having pursued a successful career at a local credit union. After years of steadily making her way up through the corporate ranks, she achieved her present position of senior loan officer.
Her personality has been described as competitive yet also playful and ready to enjoy life, coupled with a vivacious demeanor. Her prime reason for undergoing a weight loss program is because of a medical diagnosis, which stated that she has N.A.S.H., a form of cirrhosis that does not involve alcoholism. Doctors have informed her that she needs to lose weight, or else her liver may be seriously endangered.
During her time on The Biggest Loser, Patty, who is 5'8", went from weighing 280 pounds to 255 pounds before she was eliminated on week 4. At the live finale, Patty weighed in at 216 pounds, losing a total of 64 pounds and 22.86% of her total body weight.
